Book Lists!

We could while away an afternoon day week ... oh, you get the picture... making up book lists. We love book lists! They are always a work in progress because we are always reading and refining, so we hope to continue to add to the ones below. Check back frequently!

Some notes before you explore:
  1. One of us (or both) has read each and every book on these lists. We think they are worth reading. If a book you love is not on our list, it doesn't meant we don't "like" it--it could very well mean we haven't read it yet! Feel free to send in suggestions, but no promises ☺.
  2. There is lots of overlap.
  3. Age/grade ranges reflect general interest levels/maturity/reading "level"/etc. Feel free to read up or down; you know your child/self, and can adapt accordingly. 
  4. Remember that you can read aloud from a book from an "older" category to a younger child, but use discretion as well (some content in older categories might be more mature than you would prefer your 4-year-old hearing).
  5. There is no one perfect book list; no list of "books-you-must-read-to-be-well-educated-or-the-best-Christian-or...." 
  6. Let kids read what they're interested in as much as you can. Motivation is a powerful factor in the love of reading.
  7. Books are linked to reviews on this site, if available.
For different sorts of book lists, see our Pinterest boards.
